Matt, thanks for the advise, but I think you
misunderstood. My client wants a Word template
that matches my Frame template. I don't plan to
"parcel" out the work; I'm doing it myself. As
the subject line indicates, I want to collaborate
with a Word guru, so my post was to find a Word
guru on the Framer's list because I'll also be
converting the Word-formatted documents to FM.
Someone who regularly uses both programs will be
able to see both sides of the equation. I just
need to ask the Word person some questions, much
as I've done with you on RoboHelp. I'm willing to
pay for someone's time. I gave an example of the
template's numbering scheme to dissuade people
who have not mastered Word's numbering from
responding. I've had a couple people respond off
list, which was what I asked for, so I'm good
now. This list is a godsend not only for FM
users, but also for folks who have other skills!

Hi Carol, perhaps you'd be well-advised to break
up the two functions and parcel the work out separately.
I've created many effective Word templates that
work properly when imported into FrameMaker
really more of a function of the style names
than the physical attributes of the Word DOT.
Once you have the "proper clean slate" as a
DOCX, you can then format as necessary within Word itself.
Of course, the less formatting on the Word side,
the better, but perhaps that's better than
waiting for someone who "likes" both Fm and Word...
